Video: Students give Wildlife Sanctuary helping hands

Students at Wildlife Sanctuary, videoMore than 4,000 animals are taken in each year by the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary. UW-Green Bay students play a big part in their care. Students receive internship credit and hands-on experience that will further them in their careers while the sanctuary receives the extra help they need to take care of the animals.

Watch the video about this great partnership.

Language Lab looking for a few good toddlers

languageUW-Green Bay Prof. Jennifer Zapf is asking Green Bay-area alumni, University employees and returning adult students with young children to consider volunteering for a visit to the Language Learning Lab on campus. Zapf and her Human Development and psychology students are conducting a major study of toddlers’ skill and language development.

Participation is easy, with only a single 30- to 45-minute session in which the parent will gently guide his or her child through a few simple play exercises. Participants (the children, anyway) get a free book or toy as a parting gift. Zapf and/or one of her student research assistants will observe.

If you have a child between the ages of 1 and 3 and a willingness to play games for science, contact Zapf at MAC Hall C310; e-mail, phone 920-465-2490. Parents can sign up online at the project website,

Pick-up the phone. It’s Alumni Phone-A-Thon time!

The 13th Annual UW-Green Bay Alumni Phone-A-Thon gets underway in mid-October as more than 20 student callers attempt to reach more than 26,000 alumni. Callers will be taking time to update your alumni profile (address, employer, etc.) as well as seeking contributions to UW-Green Bay in support of scholarships and academic programs.

This year we’ll be calling different majors each month. In October, we’ll be focusing on alumni who earned degrees in Growth & Development, Human Development, Psychology and the Master’s program in Community Human Services. Calling will take place on October 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22.

If you would like to support your alma mater, but are a bit difficult to reach by phone, feel free to visit us online 24 hours a day to make your gift at

Please help us build a stronger UW-Green Bay…one student at a time.
